Beautiful photos! My favorites is "Dragonfly in Texture" (they are so hard to capture) and "Yellow Boat". So nice!

Tobie said...

I love them all but especially Daisy Still Life and Singular.

Hi Kate:
Well, you know I'm a fan! I love the Little Acorn and Spring Bloom prints from your etsy shop. They're both wonderful...as are all of your prints.
Thanks for offering such a generous giveaway.

I'm especially drawn to the Trees in the Mist and Singing for his Supper. Something about the ability of the shots to stand without vibrant color really speaks to me. Thanks for sharing the talent!

lissa said...

I would have to go with the flowers - Golden Glow & Daisy in texture - I am tempted by George at the Gate - the warm weather here makes me wish for snow

Kim said...

Hi Kate:
I love your photography and reading about your day to day life. I really find peace with your pictures. I especially love Bell Tower and Yellow Boat. I look forward to your blog everyday...and especially George!!
Kim

Mary said...

Love them all, but my favorite is "Singing for His Supper". Thanks so much for the gaveaway.

Michelle said...

Oh.oh.oh! I LOVE "Evening Swirls"! The colors would look so good in my great room, too. My second choice is much harder, but maybe the "Daisy Still Life" because they would look good hung together.

D. Murphy said...

Your blog is one of my favorites and I look forward to it every day. I am drawn to bloggers who find the joy and beauty in life and share with their readers. I rarely post comments but I couldn't resist Seagull and Yellow Boat.

The Wife of a Dairyman said...

As you know I love all your photographs:) I would have to go with singing for his supper and the seagull.

Karen said...

Dragonfly in Texture and Silver Butter knife. Now I have to go over to your Etsy site, how did I not know you had one???

Andi said...

Bell Tower Bell Tower bell Tower!! I love the Bell Tower - I should just buy it! :) I will even save you shipping and come pick it up! :)

Donna S. said...

Too hard!! I would prob have to say
Turkey Point Lighthouse & Yellow Boat. Ugh Love vibrant sunflower too!!!

Yvonne said...

It is hard to choose but my choices are singing for his supper and George at the gate.

Judy said...

I'm a lurker of your blog, but I just had to come out of hiding when I saw your wonderful giveaway. We just moved into a log home on 20 acres living amongst the Amish and Mennonites in Southwest Wisconsin. Right away I fell in love with the "Heading Home" and the "Cardinal during snowstorm" reminds me of Illinois where we moved from. Both will fit wonderfully in our new home.

Jill of All Trades said...

Dragonfly in Texture and the White Beach Rose. Just beautiful...love them all.

Chrissykat said...

Oh boy Oh boy Oh boy!!!
Daisy still life
Daisy in texture
Yippeeee!!!

Jeanne Walker aka Rileigh's Lolli said...

You make deciding so very hard 'cause all of your photos are blue ribbon winners! But if I must choose, I choose Great Egret.
We live amongst lakes and there are great white egrets all around the lakes. They are so majestic and pure, and you have captured their essence in this photograph.
Thanks, Kate, for sharing and for offering us the chance to own one of them. If I win, that'll make two that I own...purchased my first one and love it.
Hugs, Jeanne

I think they are all wonderful!

Lizzie said...

Oohh, thanks for the chance Kate, my favourites would have to be 'Dragonfly in Texture' and 'Turkey Point Light'. It's a hard pick though because they are all exceptionally good...

Emom said...

WOW! George at the Gate and Seagull.....smiles....happy days....

Deborah said...

Kate..I didnt realize you had a site on Etsy..they are all so very beautiful!!
After having gazed at them all for a while, I am particularily drawn to "Heading Home" and to "Love me tender".
Thanks for just being you!
You are a delight to many (including me!) :)

Deborah xo

Mental P Mama said...

I want the little bird singing for his supper. You can just bring it to me when you come up here;) Thank you.

BTW...these are all awesome.

Donna Gunn said...

Well it's hard to decide but my favorites are "Heading Home" and "Cardinal in a Snowstorm". Your work is awesome.

Chocolate Cat said...

As always your photos are beautiful. I love the dragonfly and the butter knife.

Kamana said...

do i have to choose only one? damn! love the beach rose, the seagull and the evening swirls.

becky up the hill said...

Evening Swirls and Daisy. Love'em them, thanks Kate.

Alisa said...

Hi Kate!! Oh I love all of the photos, especially the Dragonfly, Beach Flower and the Seagull...I could see any one of them hanging in my house or my classroom. Glad to hear you had a wonderful time in Maine, I'd love to go there someday:)

FireLight said...

Well....I guess I blinked and summer is over! Tomorrow is my first day back to school...pre-planning and all the stuff! Hmmmm...let me see....Make it Bell Tower & George at the Gate!

Ellen said...

I would love the cardinal photo and the single tree in "Singular." I'd give the cardinal to my dad, the world's biggest cardinal fan. Plus, I've seen it in person at Nurse Nancy's and I love it.

deborah said...

I hope you know how much I love your photography! I was drawn to 'Trees in the Mist' immediately, and then Turkey Point Lighthouse. I like them all, of course! Love your blog, too.

Char said...

white beach rose and singing for his supper.

beautiful work as always

Fearless Nester said...

Oh Kate I adore George at the Gate, and Upside Down just cracks me up! What a great giveaway of your gorgeous photography. Thanks for the chance to win. ~Lili

Muddy Boot Dreams said...

Really? I can enter also? Wow, everyone of those is simply stunning. But if I had to choose the dragonfly is my fav.

Jen

Snappy Di said...

Hi Kate... don't enter me in the giveaway. I'm just here to say 'HELLO'. BUT, I do love all your photos, you know that. :-)

Di

Laura ~Peach~ said...

love the dragon fly and the gull!

Sally said...

I love your blog and photos.
My favourites are "Upside Down" and "Heading Home" :-)

BUSH BABE said...

George at the Gate... your snow photos mesmerise me!
:-)
BB

BUSH BABE said...

Oops ... TWO photos BB! Right... George at the gate and Seagull. Would look nice in contrast side by side...
:-)
BB

Jayne said...

Oh, I'd definitely want George at the Gate! Crossing my fingers!!!!

Anonymous said...

My favorites are Turkey Point Light and Bell Tower. We went to visit Hopewell Furnace just because I saw it on your site. It was not far from our vacation destination, so I made plans to visit it. I absolutely loved visiting there. So different from where I live.

maillady said...

hey katy, i love all your pictures. hard to choose. i think maybe i like the singing for dinner the best. than again i like the beach rose too. decisions /decisions......you know how to reach me.

Sarah said...

All are so lovely, it's quite difficult to narrow the choice to only two. Silver Butter Knife and Beauty On The Road top the list for me.

Thanks. And fingers crossed!

Rural Revival said...

Always a tough decision but I love George at the Gate and Cardinal during snowstorm. I guess I have a thing for winter scenes.

~Andrea~

Nancy H. said...

I love all of your photography. I love the "Dragon =fly in Texture" and "The Seagull." I have the perfect place to hang these photos if I win!

Lucia said...

Breathtaking photos! Especially the one of the bird "singing for his supper" reminds me of misty morning rainy days walking to school.

altar ego said...

My favorite has got to be the gull. My father is a major fan of Jonathon Livingston Seagull, and I have taken to photographing gulls for him whenever I have a chance. This fellow, however, tops anything I've even been able to capture.

Gail said...

Singing for His Supper and George at the Gate are my favorites this morning but tomorrow they will be different. They are all so beautiful I would be honored to own any.

Never stop taking pictures, you eyes and hands are magic!

Madi and Mom said...

They are all extraordinary...
but since I have to make a selection I select either:
George at the Gate and Turkey point lighthouse
Any picture of George is beautiful
I'm from NC we love all light houses because of their importance to the coast. You many contact me at cecilia042011@yahoo.com or http://downhomeinnc.blogspot.com
I enjoyed our vacation to Maine.

americancowgurl said...

Your photos are all so beautiful! My two favorites from your Etsy site are "Singular" and "Trees in the Mist."

Snap said...

What fun! I love the seagull and the dragonfly ... I really love them all, but ... the seagull is calling to me big time!!!! LOL! Thanks so very much!

Sandra said...

Bell Tower and Dragonfly in Texture are my favorites; your photography is exquisite.

Daryl said...

Cool ...

The Weaver of Grass said...

How could I possibly choose when they are all so beautiful Kate. I suppose if I have to pick one it would be that lovely bird singing for his supper.

LOVE THE BEACH FLOWER. WHAT DID YOU DO TO THAT POOR GULL'S LEG?

Cowgirl in the City said...

I love Daisy Still Life and Singular (just like Tobie).

Hope I win! :)

Jeanne Walker aka Rileigh's Lolli said...

Duh...I only picked one. So my second favorite is George at the Gate!

Sweetpea said...

Ahhh CG, very nice of you to run a Giveaway!

Have been {{{{in love}}}} with these two photos since the first moment I saw them: Heading Home and Singular.

And I've always loved George, but then that's a whole 'nuther story altogether.... :>]]

Rachel Lynn said...

So hard to choose, but I love Spring Bloom and George at the Gate!

Anonymous said...

They are all lovely but my absolute favorites are "singing for his supper" and "evening swirls". Fantastic.

njskog said...

I'm a pushover for birds - so I'd have to choose Seagull and Upside Down. I enjoy the chickadees in my yard daily - and enjoy your posts daily. Even when there isn't a new one, I check to be sure!!

wildbanshee said...

My choice would have to be White Beach Rose.

Beaded Embellishments said...

Beautiful photography! So hard to choose only two, but my favourites are Soft and Cardinal During Snowstorm.
Denise

Jen at Cabin Fever said...

'Singing for his Supper' is my favorite. I remember back when you posted it and loved it then!

Cabin Fever in Vermont

maricel said...

White beach rose..so clean. Reminds me of a bride.

Mary Lou said...

How can one pick?
I love Yellow boat, Upside Down and Dragonfly in Texture. You used to have one that was a macro that was Fleur De Lis something. I've always loved that and would like to buy it if it's still available.
Thanks for the chance to win one of your beautiful works.

Ann On and On... said...

I love your work...but I've told you that a million times. (One more time won't hurt! :D)
Dragonfly is amazing...I also really like Singular. Sometimes I'm driving and see one tree in a field and think how beautiful it is and what a special photo that would be. You have captured that for me.

GREAT giveaway, thanks!

wayne15575 said...

First one I would choose is " Singular". I was an only child raised in a rural setting by my Grandparents. This not only reminds me that being alone isn't a bad thing, but, also that from where I'm from is/or was nothing to ever be ashamed of.

second choice was Daisy in texture. Not only is this beautiful, but it also inspired me to go out and photograph a number of other flowers that were similar. The texture part reminds me that you can always add to what you might think is beautiful and others will admire it even more.

Rachel said...

I have been loving your blog, and it makes me wish I lived on the east coast. I like the silver butter knife and singing for his supper.....Actually I love them all, but know exactly where I would hang each of those.

Myriam said...

Hi there Kate!
Big hello to you all the way from England!
I love all your photos but my two favourite ones for the giveaway got to be: "Daisy Still Life" and "Dragonfly in Texture".
All the best and keep up the great work!

Lioness said...

Loving "Bell Tower" and "Trees in the Mist".

Sharmon Davidson said...

It's soooooo hard to pick, but I like Great Egret and Hand Colored Flowers! Here's hoping i win!

Linda said...

Hi! I have family in York, Maine...I'm always curious if you accidentally
photograph them!! My fav. photo is the white rose, followed by the singing bird.
I enjoy reading your blog daily!
thanks.
and, I love George xo

Linda said...

So difficult to choose! I just love your 'eye'. Jealous of your mad skillz;-)
That said I'm in love with White Beach Rose and Hibiscus Swirls.

Patti said...

Oh my goodness, I would LOVE to have the Dragonfly print!!! Soft is my other pick... love them! Great blog, and awesome photography.

Carolynn said...

So beautiful, Kate. And, generous.

Your Bell Tower image hangs in my bedroom. I love it very much and send out warm thoughts to you everytime I see it.

*Hugs*

Carolynn

Meg @ Soup Is Not A Finger Food said...

How to choose a favorite? I think the Beach Rose and the swirly one are particularly lovely, but I like them ALL, of course.

Jan's camera said...

Hi, so many wonderful photos to choose from. I would love have "Great Egret" and "Seashell". They are all lovely.

kate i said...

Wow Kate, These are so beautiful!

Because I live on the (opposite) coast and know his "kin" well and because he simply cracks me up, I have to choose the seagull...but the softness and beautiful folds of the morning glory, pulls on me too.

What a treat to see all your gorgeous photographs together like this!

Stickhorsecowgirls said...

I love em all - so hard to choose---but I could get lost gazing at "George's Gate" and "Singing for His Supper" also "speaks" to me! Crossing my fingers and hoping to win!

Ralphie23 said...

My favorites are:"Dragonfly in Texture" and "Singing for his Supper". They are both amazing prints, I can only hope to be as good as you someday! I just purchased my first SLR camera-the Nikon D3000 and I haven't gotten the chance to use it much yet. I can't wait to break it out and take some fall photos once this weather breaks.

Brandi said...

Dragonfly in texture and daisy in texture would look amazing in my living room, especially since my walls are currently naked! :-)

siilenti said...

I love "Belltower" and "evening Swirls" gorgeous prints!

Corny said...

Dragonfly and of course & singing for his supper!
The Dragonfly is my Granddaughter favorite but i never get a shot of it. They are just to fast! "Singing for his supper" is just perfect, you don't know if it is a photograph or a Scherenschnitt.

Cheyenne said...

I like so many of them, it's hard to choose. But I guess I would have to go with It's Always Sunny and Evening Swirls!
Cheyenne

Jane said...

All are beautiful, but my faves are "singing for his supper" and "dragonfly". Thanks for sharing!

M and M said...

Turkey Point Light and Yellow boat would be amazing hanging together, both so ethereal. They are all wonderful, and you've inspired me to do more with my photos.
